Although Kansas didn’t win the regular-season title in the Big 12 for the first time since 2004, Bill Self is two wins away from winning the conference tournament. Next up for his team will be a showdown with West Virginia.
The Jayhawks put the Texas Longhorns’ NCAA Tournament hopes in danger with a win last night. Strong defense and timely buckets
Dedric Lawson and. Devon Dotson led the charge for the offense, but the most surprising performance came from David McCormack. The freshman has now scored double digits in his past three contests for the Jayhawks.
On paper, Kansas has the far superior roster to West Virginia. However, Texas Tech and Oklahoma were also considered better yet fell to the hands of the Mountaineers.
West Virginia continues receiving heroic performances from unlikely members of its roster. Emmit Matthews Jr. went from being a role player to scoring 28 points against the Red Raiders.
The Mountaineers and the Jayhawks split the series in the regular season, but this one is for all the marbles.
